Host family childcare (GOO): small-scale, homely and flexible

Are you looking for small-scale childcare where your child is placed in a normal family environment? Or would you prefer your child to be looked after in your home? Then SKSG Host family childcare is definitely for you.

Host family childcare is small-scale and tailored flexible day care. This childcare for children from the ages of 0 to 12 years of age takes place in a homely atmosphere and children always see the same familiar face of the host parent. Children are looked after in small groups of a maximum of six children, depending on their age. As days and times are arranged mutually with the host parent, host family childcare is ideal if you have flexible working hours. Babies and children who need extra attention flourish really well with host family childcare because of the peaceful atmosphere and continuity. A host family can also be a fine place for after-school childcare. Or maybe you prefer a host parent in your home.

How does it work?

The childcare days and hours are determined together with the host parent. A minimum of 32 hours a month applies for children from the age of 0 to 4, with an average of 8 hours a week. A minimum of 20 hours a month applies for children from the age of 4 to 12, with an average of 5 hours a week. Generally, your child is cared for during the day but you can discuss with the host parent whether childcare in the evening, at night or in the weekend is also possible. Host family childcare is not arranged per day part: the actual hours of childcare are charged. Thus, very flexible!

Would you like to be a host parent?

Well this is of course also possible at SKSG! You work independently but you are part of an enthusiastic group of host families. We organise monthly morning get-togethers where there is plenty of opportunity for discussion amongst ‘colleagues’ while the children play together. You and the children can also join the small trips that SKSG organises. SKSG organises appropriate training for host families in consultation with the Host Family Committee.
